Using web-based collaboration technology for business development within a law firm

Here is another example of how this type of technology used to construct the E-Discovery Portal can be used in the marketing, business development and educational sense. If you are interested in seeing the E-Discovery Portal, please let me know (kenneth.jones@xerdict.com).

Sedgwick Launches E-Discovery Management & Compliance Practice Group and E-Discovery Portal

January 2007

In response to the significant amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that went into effect on December 1, 2006, Sedgwick announces the creation of its E-Discovery, Data Management & Compliance Practice Group and e-Discovery Portal. The e-Discovery Portal, which was constructed using Sedgwick's internal Xerdict web-based collaboration technology, is a repository of essential forms, cases, statutes, regulations, rules and articles, providing Sedgwick attorneys and the firm's clients with direct access to practical and relevant information needed at the onset of litigation. The practice group, led by San Francisco Partner Keith Casto and New York Partner Kenneth Rashbaum, further positions the firm as a leader of legal services related to e-discovery and data management.
